Just a few weeks to go to the 2015 DTM season kick-off at the Hockenheimring
A first foretaste of the things to come will be provided from Wednesday to Friday (25th to 27th March) during the official ITR tests at Estoril, Portugal.
The Hockenheimring was originally built in 1932 and is home to the biannual German Formula One race
The FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy has agreed terms with the World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) to hold a 13th World Championship round alongside the DTM season-opener at the Hockenheimring in Germany (1-3 May, 2015).
In ten weeks from now, the DTM 2015 project will begin in earnest for the Audi squad.
On May 2, the first in a total of 18 races of the new season will be held at the Hockenheimring. Audis mission for 2015: to defend the manufacturers title in the internationally popular touring car racing series and to bring the drivers title back home to Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm.
Mattias Ekström scored his second victory in a row in the DTM season finale at the Hockenheimring.
In bright sunshine, the Audi works driver came to the fore against his fellow Audi drivers Mike Rockenfeller and Jamie Green in a thrilling dash towards the chequered flag. With Paul Di Resta and Marco Wittmann, the best-placed Mercedes-Benz and BMW driver followed in fourth and fifth place respectively.
Final decision has not yet been made
Yet another meeting to discuss the future of the German grand prix at Hockenheim passed this week without a definitive solution. The race’s existing private promoters have ruled out absorbing financial losses in future, raising the prospect that Germany, an important and traditional F1 host, will not be featured on the 2010 formula one calendar.
